The biggest problem with these games are the 'Blues' you get afterwards, knowing you have to return to reality...

Not much too add. Loved the game. Thanks very much to Gordon, Graeme and Vince. The details were great HQs set up, mortar pits, parachute, check point, glide etc etc etc as well as the fighting scenarios.
Thanks to my Zug for putting up with me. Thought we did have some real good squad action going.
My respect to all Allied players for fair play. Seeing attack in the great uniforms was impressive.

Firstly thanks to all who attended just a few drop outs for various reasons beyond their control but the game numbers were great, especially seeing all you Red Devils! It looked awesome a complete side of Airborne.

Germans were also well kitted out as we always are in our Hugo Boss get ups.

Kit – it always amazes me how much effort people put into their kit it really enhances the game and also gives the new people something to aspire to.

Talking of new people I met a few new to our hobby all of you really took to it and I hope that you found our rule set with limited ammo of 200 rounds fitting for the WW2 scene. From comments seen it was fine and we have used this before with great success over the years so I feel that will be the benchmark for our games. I hope I have managed to hook a few of you in for games in the future.

I am glad you liked the props I do enjoy making them and getting a kick out of other people seeing them, some of the pictures look great especially the Mortar pit with my new mortars which I have promised already to loan out.
Friday night social was good but I do admit my mind was racing thinking of the next day so hope to participate more in September Hic Hic!!.

Thanks for the 2 photographers who turned up I hope that you didn`t get hit too many times.

Big Thanks to Peter for the amazing effort he put into enhancing the game with his box of pyro tricks. You Rock Peter.
On that front some of you may not know but Peter is taking a little while out of the scene but we all hope he will be back with a bang at the end of the year, No pun intended. Through his generosity a little bullying we have made a collection of £200 which I have donated to a charity called Scotty’s Little soldiers a charity dedicated to supporting children who have lost a parent whilst serving in the British Armed services.
OK with support that you all give to the event I better start thinking of next year then!!!

A huge thank you to Gordon, Graham and Vince for organising the event, and also Peter for adding some much extra to the day.
As always a great day, great props and a lot of fun. Nice to see old faces and meet a few new ones.

Guys I just wanted to say the both Gordon and Graeme did most of the work for this game so well done to them, especially the props and order which were excellent - on a personal note the highlights for me were the load outs and kit from everyone and the game play that was excellent - well done to everyone for that.

Great game

Like everyone's said. already, fantastic day. Had enormous amounts of fun and well done to all of the Section 2 guys for a sterling performance! Such a shame there's a lull in games now as it got me eager for another game!

Another voice added to the chorus of approval here.

I had a fantastic day. Switched to the sten for the last two battles but had far more success earlier in the day with a Lee Enfield that was not just sub 500 but sub 300fps. I threw grenades which at least headed in the right direction and managed to die heroically (yet gingerly). What more could one ask for?

Great set dressing (I never even saw the glider) and I liked the casualty station/medic rule too. Apologies for my grenade and (thankfully jammed) machine gun attack on the German aid station, looking up the hill from undergrowth the red cross wasn't visible.

Great to see new and old faces, very fair play and a fantastic turnout on the kit front.

Well done one and all but in particular the organisers, it was an excellent continuance of the AGS ethos.



I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

Thanks again to the organisers, i'm sure i'll get to know you better in the future. I think we will definitely be camping for a night on the next one.

Just in response to some of the questions i think the pyro really made some of the fights more dramatic, and I jumped out of my skin a couple of times. Also the ammo limits i really think worked well. I was running around with only 75 rounds for my M1 carbine for most of the day, and i didn't even get through all of them on our last stand. Didn't feel outgunned except for the odd jerry in a bunker with a machine gun, but that's exactly how it should be!
